Indusface announced that they would be expanding the core management team to accelerate business growth to meet industry security requirements. Karthik Krishnamoorthy joins as Head of Engineering and Raj Marripalli will be heading Product Management & Marketing. Both of them would bring in years of experience and expertise in the application security industry. The company hopes to leverage their experience and knowledge to grow faster and scale new heights.
“We are elated to have two industry veterans like Karthik Krishnamoorthy and Raj Marripalli as part of our leadership team. They will prove to be extremely resourceful in building world-class teams, improving technology, and elevating customer value,” says, Ashish Tandon, Chairman and CEO of Indusface. “Their proven expertise in the SaaS space will help us deliver total application security solutions efficiently and extend Indusface’s market leadership. They will prove to be indispensable in developing and launching our forthcoming SaaS offerings. “
Karthik brings in 20 years of experience in leadership roles with companies like Intel, McAfee, Trend Micro and Entrust. Apart from technical expertise, his strengths include analytical skills and the ability to work with cross-cultural teams. He is expected to play a huge role in accelerating tech innovation at Indusface, and in developing new security solutions to meet the evolving needs of the market.
“Over the past several years, I have worked with both startups and large multinationals in the security domain and most recently at Intel and McAfee. Being closely involved in numerous security product developments, I was impressed with the vision, energy, and possibility of changing the game and making an impact in the application security market with Indusface,” he said. “I’m excited to join an impressive team at Indusface and take their product offering to the next level.”
Raj has over two decades of experience in managing the product lifecycle of successful SaaS and on-premise products from conception to market launch and maintaining relationship with top revenue generating customers. He has worked with CA Technologies and Oracle in the past. At Indusface, he will be responsible for all product management and marketing activities.
He said, “I have worked with large multinationals, where product management is responsible for building and launching products, but with very little say in GTM and other marketing functions which are very critical to the success of a product. Indusface has an impressive product, a very strong foundation, combined with the vision of unified application security that is proven in a particular market. They also have the hunger and ardent desire to make it big, very big. A great place for me to be and make an impact.”
Indusface’s Chief Technology Officer Venkatesh Sundar believes that this change will accelerate growth and strengthen the company’s foundation. “Both new leaders, Karthik and Raj, will bring in global perspective and hands-on approach to getting things done quickly. We are very fortunate to have them join our team. We would like to welcome them and look forward to them playing an instrumental role in our endeavor to disrupt the Appsec market.” he says.
